NANTOU COUNTY: A Taiwanese couple decked out in a tux and outfit grasp before a mountain of waste in an unconventional wedding photo — one the environment-conscious bride trusts will dishearten her visitors from producing unnecesary garbage.
Greenpeace campaigner Iris Hsueh and her life partner are having their “environmentally neighborly wedding” in January, and have inquired visitors to bring their claim holders for taking domestic leftovers.
Deciding that appearing — not telling — was a more compelling communication strategy, the Taipei-based couple voyage three hours south for a photo shoot in Nantou county’s Puli township, where the sum of junk brought to a nearby dump has relentlessly risen over the years. “If any visitors are not willing to bring along a holder, I would appear them the photo and say, ‘Would you reconsider?’” the 33-year-old said, including that the photographs finished up drawing nearby media consideration. “I didn’t think it would make such a huge sensation.”
